One of Google's Favorite Places

Author: JLB

Published On: December 16, 2009

This past week, we received a package from Google. Surprised? Yes, we were.

The letter went on to explain that our Local Business Center listing with Google has been visited nearly 1,500 times from July thru September. That qualified JLB as a “popular” search destination in the LBC.

We’ve put the decal up in the window of our office’s front door. And it’s got this cool little bar code. I used my iPhone to take a photo of the bar code, then I downloaded a free iPhone app (called, appropriately, “Barcode”). Then, I used the ap to scan the bar code, and it produced a URL (weblink), which I entered into a browser and, viola!, it loaded up our listing in the LBC.

Pretty fun. But what’s most suprising to me is that Google contacted us through the mail to notify us of our LBC status. Even more, it’s the second direct mail piece we’ve received from Google in 30 days. (The first item was a $100 coupon to use on Google AdWords.) Now I’m curious about the advertising mogul & search firm’s strategy in sending mail (vs. e-mail), which it could easily (and less expensively) utilize. This certainly marks a new step for Google, as it continues to extend its advertising reach beyond the borders of the Internet.

It’s remarkable working with the team that treats your business they would their own with drive, innovation, humility and a shared love of bringing great things to the wonderful Franklin & Nashville community.

We interviewed several web design firms, but found that JLB’s talented team was the most creative, innovative, and professional. Choosing JLB has been a great decision! We are fortunate to have JLB be a part of the BMC Metalwork’s future as we continue to enhance our business.

“There were a number of website design companies in Nashville that would have done an adequate job for our company. The difference was that JLB wanted to be our partner and has been for 11 years. STAR Physical Therapy has been blessed to have them as a teammate.”
